Humanscale have been shortlisted in two categories at the Mixology North Awards.

Taking place on the 6th December, Humanscale will be up for two Product of the Year awards: Smart Ocean, in the Task Furniture category and M/CONNECT2, in the Lighting & Technology Accessories category. 

Humanscale is the premier designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products that improve health and comfort at work. It’s award-winning office solutions – including self adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms and task lighting – inspire movement and support the user in their every posture.

Smart Ocean incorporates almost 2 pounds of recycled fishing net material and is Living Product Certified – meeting the most rigorous sustainable manufacturing criteria to date. The material used to produce Smart Ocean is sourced from Net Positiva, a collection and recycling program aimed at combating the detrimental effects of discarded ocean fishing nets. These nets are transformed into recycled nylon pellets used for manufacturing.

Featuring the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean (available in a black frame) offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user.

M/CONNECT2 is a new USB docking station that provides power delivery to USB-C and Thunderbolt notebooks while being backwards compatible to USB 3.0 notebooks. This offers a universal solution during the transition from USB 3.0. M/Connect 2 can be integrated into any Humanscale Monitor Arm or be independently mounted to the desk without an arm.

M/Connect 2’s innovative split dock technology allows all cables to be connected under the desk and off the work surface, which limits accessibility to connections the user doesn’t require. An easily accessible hub on the desk provides the user with immediate access to data, charging and audio ports.

Best of luck! Informare will be there to support Humanscale and to celebrate its place as finalists – and, hopefully, winners!
